Fictional Art/ists

Fictional art/artists that I wish were real:

- "Unterwelt," the made-up Fritz Lang film in Don Delillo's "Underworld"
- All the brilliantly weird, non-starter stories from "if on a winter's night a traveler" by Italo Calvino
- "The Three", the Hollywood movie from "Adaptation"
- Pink, the singer in Pink Floyd's "The Wall"
- The first, famous-making novel in "Wonder Boys"
- Kilgore Trout

Fictional art/artists that I am glad will remain fictional:

- William Forrester from "Finding Forrester"
- The novel from "Sideways"
- Stillwater from "Almost Famous"
- The long, unfinished novel from "Wonder Boys"
- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Jack Driscoll and any and all plays by Jack Driscoll from the new "King Kong"
